Merry Christmas and Welcome 2016

mitchell family christmas 2015 Well that year flew bye so quickly. We started out as a family of 5 living and working together and throughout the year each child left and it was just Brian and I. So happy to get together for Christmas even if it was for only two days.

Sam joined the army in April 2015 that was a proud moment for all of us. Polly decided she wanted to try flatting and moved out in June 2015 and continues to manager Hungry Jacks. Our youngest was concreting and still at home but after we got an offer to manage a caravan park, he moved to Moree with his Uncle to work down there.

I certainly didn’t get to scrapbook much or exercise much or achieve some of the goals I set but I have been true to myself and not given up my faith.kingfisher

The caravan park turned out not to be what it should have been and after 5 months of 7 days a week we left.  I got a job straightway working on Fraser Island and Brian is resting up.  View is the jetty on the Island.


So now we are already in 2016.  I have chosen to leave behind some of 2015 which hasn’t been serving me like sugar,  now that is a challenge.  I’m about to go on a 10 day detox with this PRODUCT if you would like to join with me sign up and let me know so we can encourage each other.

I will get back to scrapbooking, now that we have moved to a house where I can get my gear out.  So I am with two different companies, both allow you to join yourself for a fee and just purchase what you want when you want.  Click on the name and it will take to you the site Our Memories For Life (this is under a sister company called Youngevity which Rhonda Anderson is with after the old Creative Memories Closed).

Creative Memories is back again and you can join this HERE and order your fav products again, no min orders for either of these.  It just $59 to join in Australia and $49 US.

What are your dreams for this year.  I still believe we need to have a vision in order to get anywhere even if we don’t know all the little details.  I wish you every success in everything you put your hand to. xxx Julia


Cheers to the outgoing year, 2015:
May the good times live on in our memories,
and may we learn lessons from the troubling times
that will make us stronger and better than ever.


Cheers to 2016:
For each and every one of you,
may it be filled with significant steps
toward the fulfillment of your fondest wishes.
May it bring you more joy and success
And less grief and regret.


Cheers to your dreams…
May you never stop believing in them
And taking the actions that will make them a reality. 
In this coming new year, let us focus on our goals
and work diligently toward them,
and yet let’s all try to go with the flow a little more
and stress a little less.


And most important, cheers to all of you.
Appreciate yourselves and each other in the New Year
as Marcia and I appreciate all of you now.

Let’s focus on each other’s good points
and choose to overlook minor annoyances. 
Let us encourage more and criticize less,
Give more and need less.
And whenever we can, let us create harmony, 
peace and mutual happiness in 2016.


Let us start fresh, right now,
to make this the very best year ever.
Welcome to 2016: Enjoy the journey!

Cost is $15.00 you need to let me know asap on 0427034568 or email on (I’m the youngest of 13 children)

Upcoming news!!!!

Our Memories For Life Creative Memories Kits

I am going to put together some kits which you can order on autoship at this stage for just Our Memories for Life as in Australia we don’t have digital as yet. I used to own my own scrapbooking shop and had a scrapbooking club where I would put together a page layout, card and an off the page item using products. What ideas would you like to see?

Talk soon Julia 🙂

If you haven’t already and would like to get started it costs $15 AUS/NZ and just $10 US. This is a one off fee and this enables you to purchase your product at cost. You do not have to sell to anyone or teach any classes, however if you want to you can. The Company Youngevity purchased Heritage Makers who then invited Rhonda Anderson to come along and bring back the old Creative Memories Products. My link to join is HERE

What is Our Memories For Life?

Archival Scrapbook Albums and Coordinating Designer Pages and Papersrhonda anderson

What is Our Memories for Life?  Glad you asked.

For more than ten years, Heritage Makers has provided the best in digital scrapbooking and custom photo-merchandise design and publication.  I personally have only ever created a couple of online albums and look forward to being able to do more digital scrapbooking when it comes to Australia.

Scrapbooking has been around for years.  I first started back in 1999 when I was introduced to the concept of putting my precious memories in photo safe albums.

Back then there was digital photos, rather you took the shot and waited excitedly to pick them up after they had be developed.  I remember to begin with they all went into the sticky albums and as a result so many photos were destroyed.

So when I became A Creative Memories Consultant my drive and passion was to help people get them out of those albums and into a beautiful story book where they could tell the story and leave behind a legacy for generations to come.

I pursued that passion for over 8 years and helped 1000’s of women and men do exactly that.  I can recall being at someone’s home using a hair dryer to carefully remove the photos of her loved ones from album pages that they were stuck to.  I remember the joy and excitement she experienced when we got them off and she was then able to transfer to a safe album and tell the story.

So today in August 2014, Rhonda Kanning Anderson, founder of Creative Memories, has partnered with Heritage Makers and together they are proud to offer the best in traditional scrapbooking albums, papers and tools.

This new line of products, branded Our Memories For Life, allows Heritage Makers to provide all the best options in memory-keeping and it is exciting to be getting back into this industry after a break of over 7 years.

Rhonda’s whom I have met and chat to regularly has had a 27- year reputation in the industry, I recall watching her on videos learning how to do what she did.  She has such a passion and commitment to photo safety, product quality, and lasting beauty.

Our Memories For Life traditional scrapbooking products will meet those high expectations and standards and I know with Rhonda at the helm Rhonda will not let any dodgy or second hand products have her name attached to it.

Everyone has photos, memories and a story to tell. I’m the youngest of 13, I have heaps of stories to tell.  There was always someone in the family who had a camera started back with some seriously old fashioned ones, and I recall my sister developing her own photos at home.

Today is so different with all the new technology that people don’t make the same time available to sit down and do traditional scrapbooking.  I love that with what limited time you have, Rhonda with her team have created beautiful designer Pages, with their subtle and rich designs, so time won’t be an issue and you can create beautiful, timeless memories in your album.

If you love to be create, our Designer Cardstock, Borders and Journaling Cards are everything you’ll need to make one-of-a-kind masterpieces!  I can’t wait for the tools and all the other product that is going to be released as well.

Finally, give your pages, pictures and stories a permanent, photo-safe home in one of our stunning bookcloth coversets – recognized by industry experts as the premier cover material for quality albums.  I know my family love going through the albums and recalling the events and memories, to me it is priceless.
Heritage Makers and Our Memories for Life products – welcome to memory keeping at it’s best.
